Aatauta (.’onstitution. The watermelon business is now the cheif concern of the railroads here in Georgia. A few days ago the traffic mana gers of the roads concerned, met at the Kimball house lo discuss ways and means of gelling llie crop (o market quickly. The result of their deliberations was the adopttion of twenty miles an hour schedules and close concur!ions hv all the roads in terested in the melon freights. The running time will he twenty miles, and only necccssary stops will ho added. The roads all agreed lo make schedules for fruit trains so that cadi connecting line would have a train ready lo take oul melons brought to ils terminus by oilier roads. In ad dition to this connecting lines will bo advised by wire of the number of cars in transit lo he delivered lo it for its next schedule. In this way mo tive power, in proportion lo the nnm J her of cars, will he ready to lake them on. Til short, the roads propose lo handle the business a little better Ilian I hey have ever handled it be fore. hast year, according lo the statistics of the Albany convention, the net re turn to growers averaged ifld on melons in ventilated and $7 on those in boxcars. It is a desideratum this year lo use as few box cars as possi ble. hast year about twenty-live per cent of the crop was shipped in box cars. Thi year tho roads propose lo do much better in this respect. The East Tennessee people say 1 hey will beat everything they have done here tofore by using ventilated cars and fast schedules. The houisvillc and Nash illo people, who had a fine ser vice last year, have added SOO now ventilated cars which they will use in the Georgia melon crop. The Western and Atlantic people say they and their connections will use very few box cars, and not at all unless the shippers crowd in on some particular days. There are new lines which will complete as outlets for the Georgia business. The Macon and Covington will take melons form Macon to Alli ens gild there deliver them to the Richmond and Danville, The mel ons from (ho new territory on the Georgia Southern and Florida will largely go that way, it is thought. Those from tho Atlanta e.nd Florida .can go out by any of the lines from Atlanta oast or west. The additional crop on the 1,000 acres now territory between Macon and Cochran lias been sold ahead in Boston. It is a special crop, and Mr. Griffin thinks will turn out from 500 la 000 cars of select fruit. The East Tennessee line, of course, will carry that business as far as Norfolk. Schedules were arranged at the Kimball house meeting so (hat Hie Savannah, Florida and Western rail road will run trainsto Albany, leaving Valdosta in the morning, gathering loaded cars on the way and deliver ing them to the Central at Albany in the evening, so that it may deliver them to tho Lotiisvillo and Nashville at Montgomery at llvo o^lpck tho next morning. The Louisville and Nashville will run a 'rain from Mont gomery at six oelock a. m. on a thir ty-hour schedule to Cincinnati. The same time will he made by trains leaving Valdosta in the evening, con necting at Montgomery twenty-hours later. The Savannah, Florida & Western trains to Albany will also connect with fast freight schedules of about iohours to Atlanta, and here with twenty miles an hour schedules over the Western & Atlantic railroad to Chattanooga and the west. The schedule from here to Cincinnati will be about twenty-five hours. The Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis and the Cincinnati Southern roads have agreed to put on connecting schedules to suit the deliv eries of the Georgia roads. The Chattanooga, Rome & Colum bus road proposes to do some business by a connection with the Central by way of Carrollton. Its road bed and motive power will be good, but it is not known how many ventilated cars it has at its disposal. The drought in south Georgia is threatening in that part of the state and may reduce the yield below what has been anticipated. Railroad estimate of the melon crop of Georgia are now about as follows: From the tine of the East Tennessee road tOO cars From thclincof tboFavannah Flor ida A W’eatern road 2,000 cars From the tine of the Georgia South cm A Florida road I»000 cara From the line of the Atlanta A Flor ida road 1,100 cara From tho line of the Central road . 2,300 care From the line of the Georgia road.. 250 cars Total 7,250 cars This is about 2,000 cars more than last year’s crop. The railroads say that the consump tion spreads over a larger territory every year, and more towns ot 10,000 inhabitants will be on the rate sheets this year. Consequently they think the larger crop will bring as good prices as ever. Mr. J. L. Hand, who tvent to Chica. go to ask the Chicago and Ohio River association for lower rates heyond the Ohio river, returned somewhat en couraged, as some of the roads show ed a disposition to make the reduc tion. The rates are in the hands of the railroads, and the following are the freights to some of the leading poits : RATES PER CAR OF 24,000 POUNDS. Atlanta to Chicago $81 CO Atlanta to Iiuflhlo, New York 78 98 Atlanta to Cincinnati 45 80 Atlanta to Cleveland, Ohio 78 80 Atlanta to Detroit, Mich 79 20 Atlanta to Evansville, Ind 45 80 Atlanta to Louisville. Ky 45 80 Atlanta to Indianapolis, hid 87 20 Atlanta to St, Louis, Mo 84 80 Atlanta to Pittsburgh, Pa 78 32 Atlanta to Memphis, Tenn 45 80 Atlanta to Nashville, Tenn 23 90 From Macon to these points the rate will be four cents per hundred, $9.60 per car more than from Atlanta. From Albany it will be seven cents per hun dred or $16.80 per car more than from Atlanta, jesup will be nine cents and Valdosta eleven cents high er than Atlanta. . These rates are not generally known, but will be substantially as above giv en. They are approximately based on a scale of eight mills per ton per mile to the Ohio river, and one cent per ton per mile on roads beyond. The'rate to Louisville and Cincinnati figures out within 36 cents of this.on a car load, and that to Nashville within $1.20. Killing the Cotton Miller. Mr. W. E. Elam, son ol Col. S. C. Elam, of this city, who is now in Tex as, representing E. Van Winkle &Co , sends us the following: Dallas, Tex , May 25, 1889. Editor Recorder Enclosed I hand you a clipping showing a very successful way in which the farmers of Texas are saving their cotton from the ravages of the cotton worm. If you have not done so already it would be of interest to the farmers of your sec tion for you to call their attention to this simple, cheap and effective meth od of getting rid ol the pests. The lamps, I believe, costs 25 cents each. Yours truly, W. E. Elam. The farmers ol Lamar county are taking dilhgent and timely steps to prevent the worms from destroying their cotton. The means adopted are not costly, and are proving destiuctive to the insects. It is this: A number of tin lamps, fixed in the center of pans of-water and oil, are set on stakes in dtflerent parts of the field. The in sects that lay the eggs from which the destructive worm is hatched, go to the light, fall into the water and oil, and all is up with them. Thescheme is a successful one.—Americus Recorder. - now’s Your Wife r Docs she feel poorly all the time, suffer from lack "of energy and n general “no-nc- count,” listless enervation?
